As storm damage clean up continues, businesses and homeowners are encouraged to submit an initial damage assessment to Lane County that will then be shared with Oregon Emergency Management.

 

The link for businesses and home owners to submit initial damage assessments is: https://apps.lanecounty.org/InitialDamageAssessment/.

 

The initial damage assessments should be high-level overviews and submitted as soon as feasible. The information will be used to determine whether there are any Federal assistance programs available for businesses and home owners.

 

Businesses and home owners are encouraged to fill out the online form, even if they have already repaired the damage. Home owners should only provide assessments for primary residences, not vacation homes. There is no guarantee that any assistance will become available.

 

Public agencies ­– including utilities, cities, school districts, water districts, park districts and others – have already been invited to engage in an assessment process and must have their initial damage assessments submitted to Lane County by tomorrow, Wednesday, March 13, at 5:00 p.m.
